This one was a lot of fun. Round Up has always been a favorite of mine from the Telarc catalog.WOW- I am first!
I was in Tower(Burlington MA) looking for this about 2 or 3 weeks sooner than it actually came out. I had seen a release date somewhere, but ended up later.
This was a CD I had owned for many years- and always enjoyed the Western theme- even if the Animal sounds leading it off are a little corny. I always enjoyed Gunfight at OK Corral.
Hearing that Telarc was releasing this in 5.1- I just couldn't wait! Hearing it in Surround just adds new light to an always enjoyed recording. It is not an overly aggressive mix, but very tasteful. You can detect all channels. Even though I enjoy this tremendously- I gave it a 9 only because if I gave it a 10-I'd give everything a 10- probably more in thanks for releases!!!
Now if Telarc would release more of their back-catalogue in 5.1
I think I requested Papa Doo Run Run but I was probably the only one.As to the Telarc back catalog coming to SACD Surround Sound, Telarc is always interested in requests for such reissues. So if you want specific albums re-done in SACD Surround, drop them an email or letter.
